 Chapter 9

The next morning Gabrielle woke up to find George asleep on the floor, she smiled. She got out of bed and walked over to the door, she felt so weak already and she had only had the mark for a day she tiptoed into Ginny's room, Ginny was awake and she looked so white and skinny her face was gaunt and pale. Gabrielle was terrified that she was going to end up like Ginny was, unable to move even to look after her own baby. She went over to Ginny and sat by her, Ginny turned her head and smiled faintly. Gabrielle took and deep breath and said "Draco has got me too. I'm so sorry but I'm scared what's going to happen to me." Ginny looked appalled and if anything she went more white. Tears were pouring down both of their faces.

"How could you be so stupid, couldn't you figure out that he would do this to you!" Ginny looked angry, her words were quiet but she could hear the anger in them "Sorry Gabrielle, I'm not going to lie. It's horrible I can't help you, you should talk to Fleur she would want to know!" Gabrielle got up and stormed to the door.

"He said he could help you. I did it for you!" This was partly true, she did want Ginny to get better but she also wanted to tell George how she felt, so it was mostly for Ginny.

She ran into her room and collapsed on her bed balling her eyes out into her pillow, she must have woke George up because soon she was embraced in his arms again. She could feel his tears falling down onto her head, she'd never seen him cry before and it made her feel worse; petrified about what was going to happen to her.

"Gabby i'm going to find Draco, it's going to be OK, he's never going to hurt you again I promise." He gave her another squeeze.

"But, he's in my head he won't stop until we're dead. Please stop him George, I'm begging you!" her face was wet and her eyes puffy from all the crying as she muttered this.

"You are not going to die! I won't let you, I can't lose you Gabby. I...I...I love you."Gabrielle's face lit up.

"I love you too George, I always have." George sat her up and hugged her more romantically then before, he put his hands on her cheeks and gently pulled her towards him, she put her arms on his hips and they kissed, his soft lips were on hers and he started pulling her body towards his and they kneeled up. Then Gabrielle pulled away, "I can't, I love you so much but I'm too young. What if..." Gabrielle's eyes were sad.

"It's OK Gabrielle, we can take it slow. You need your rest, I love you Gabby so much." George smiled and lay her down.

"I love you George." She closed her eyes and drifted off to sleep. George quietly got up and went downstairs to send Fleur a letter, he explained everything hoping that she wouldn't blame him or anything, he managed to catch an old but still hyperactive Pigwidgeon and tied the letter to his foot, it read;

Fleur and Bill,

I am so sorry to tell you this but I thought you would want to know. Gabrielle was caught by Draco, she managed to escape but has the mark of her arm. She is already weak and in pain, I will solve this, I will find Draco but I thought you ought to know. Please come she is so scared and she needs her sister.


He sent Pigwidgeon out the window and went into the dining room, Mrs Weasley, Harry and James, Mr Weasley Hermionie and Ron were chatting and laughing. George went in and coughed so that they would acknowledge him,

"Umm...everyone Draco has marked Gabrielle..." Before he could explain everyone was shouting except Mrs Weasley who already knew. There were lots of how's, who's and where's. "HEY! Firstly , she went to Draco because he promised to help Ginny, he captured her and she got away but not before he marked her on her arm, it is not her fault so don't be mad. She is absolutely terrified and weak already; she isn't as strong as Ginny so I need to solve this." George looked at everyone, they had gone silent and were staring at him with gaped mouths.

"OK, we have to find Draco." Harry said, "Ginny won't last much longer either..." He was cut off as Ron stormed upstairs.

"Stay here!" George ran up the 3 flights of stairs to find Ron storming into Gabrielle's room. "RON NO! IT'S NOT HER FAULT!" Ron was storming towards Gabrielle who was shaking on the bed, muttering apologies to Ron when George came in. Ron pulled up her sleeve and looked in horror.

"How could you be so stupid!" He was holding her arm tightly and she was shaking vigorously looking at the floor.

"I'm sorry I was just trying to help, sorry Ron." She had tears cascading down her face.

"RON! Let her go now!" George looked furious at Ron, "She was trying to help now let her go or I will curse you! Brother or not!" Ron let her go and walked out the room. Gabrielle was still crying and George went over to her and gave her a huge hug, "Don't listen to him, he is just upset."

"George, he's right I shouldn't have been so stupid!" George put his hands up to her face and wiped away her tears.

"I am going to talk to the rest of them, get some rest OK. I will sort this out, I love you Gabby." George gave her a kiss then walked out and downstairs.

"Ron, what the hell do you think you were doing? It isn't her fault!" George said sternly

"Sorry, I just haven't got any sleep between Ginny screaming and the new baby, I am just fed up of all of this why does it always happen to us?" Ron looked genuinely apologetic.

"I know, I am going to talk to Draco tonight. He will pay for what he's done to Ginny and Gabrielle." George looked around as Fleur and Bill walked in. Fleur had obviously been crying and immediately requested an explanation.

"Well where is she?" George pointed upstairs

"In my old room, she is OK, but she is weak already." Fleur ran upstairs closely followed by Bill and George. She walked into the room and gave her little sister a big hug.

"Oh Gabrielle are you OK? I am going to help, Mrs Weasley can look after Victoire." Gabrielle smiled at her.

"Thank you Fleur. Can I talk to George for a minute sorry." Fleur looked a bit confused but agreed, and left with Bill.

George sat on the bed, "George, what are we going to do? What will we tell them?" George nodded.

"We will tell them the truth but, after this whole thing is sorted, I promise we can be together properly. Come here." George opened his arms and hugged Gabrielle.
